HTC terms monthly security updates as ‘unrealistic’

Nearly a couple of months after companies like Google, Samsung, and LG said they will release monthly security updates for their Android devices, HTC has said that the company can’t promise the same as it is unrealistic.

In a tweet sent out this past weekend (see above), HTC America President Jason Mackenzie said that while the Taiwanese company will try to deliver regular updates, guaranteeing an update each month is not possible as it also requires carrier approval.

If you aren’t already aware, the promise from Google, Samsung, and LG came in the wake of a nasty Android vulnerability dubbed Stagefright, which affected versions 2.2 and newer of the OS. Recently, a new Stagefright vulnerability has also been discovered.
